Brecken Ray has arrived!

Two of my closest friends just recently had a baby! I had the honor of being in their wedding three years ago and now I get to enjoy watching as their family grows. This new mom has been a friend of mine for a long long time. In fact, she was the first friend I made when my parents got a new house and I switched schools in third grade. We've grown up together, and she has been a huge part of my life. It's so awesome to have friends like that, the ones that you sit down for dinner with and not only reminisce about the past few years, but about the past 20. She let me experiment with her wedding making the invitations, and honestly is the whole reason I started this little side business.

Her baby shower invite is simple and elegant. I love anything timeless and so does this happy new momma.  The baby bedroom colors are grey and navy so we incorporated them onto the shower invitation and matching registry card. I've started adding the separate registry card because it's easier for the guests to slide it into their wallet and carry with them. Rounded corners are something new I've been trying as well, and I'm loving the look of them. A little navy bow at the top is the perfect finishing touch. I'm so happy with how these turned out! What do you think?

Milly Margaret is on her way!

Here's a sweet baby shower invitation for a little girl named Milly Margaret. This color combination proves that blue isn't just for the boys!
A blue lattice pattern filled the background, while light pink was incorporated throughout the text and in the small ribbon detail that wrapped around the center. The invite was placed inside a textured light pink envelope with each guests address printed on the front.

A Beautiful Bridal Shower

It seems like chevron stripes have taken over the world. But I can't complain... I love simple graphic patterns that seem to go with anything! This invite took on a very elegant feel through the use of layered paper, pink satin ribbon, and chevron stripes. The final product was perfect for a bridal shower.

Matching light pink linen textured envelopes wrapped up the beautiful invitation. Some like to argue that printing your addresses on envelopes isn't personal enough. However, I think matching the addresses with the same font used on the invitation really pulls it all together. There's a big difference between a small printed sticker in a plain typeface slapped on the front and a well thought out printed address. So why risk getting a hand cramp trying to become a professional calligrapher for one party when I can take your typed listed of addresses and match them seamlessly to your invitation? Seems like a no brainer! If you cant afford a professional calligrapher then this is definitely the next best option.
